This is the catalogue of the memorial exhibition of Lii Jiin-shiow, a prolific artist who passed away at the age of fifty in 2003.

Huang Tsailang, director of the Taipei Fine Arts Museum wrote, 'This exhibition consists of six themes in the order of Lii's progress in the course of art and her distinct manifestation of different styles: 1. An Illusionary Life, 2. Fleeting Time, 3. The Wave of "Self-consciousness", 4. The Figure of Reality, 5. "Self At Ease, 6. Insistence on Perfection.

The major content includes the discussion over the fleeting illusion of life and the random symbols of her personal vocabulary, the experience of spatial penetration, the awareness of calligraphy and the art of trees, her worries in reality, focus and solitary confrontations, the content and ease that exceed the ordinary and finally, the realization of her dreams. Among her abundant artworks, besides the one hundred and sixty more carefully chosen pieces of sketches, water paint, acrylic, calligraphy, ink, installations, etc., there are also a series of very rare images of architectural installations, informational works as well as journals and letters...'
